Catalogue Number: 03P065
Label: Cello Classics
Description: Written in 1907 for Casals and his wife Guilhermina Suggia, Moór's four-movement, 27-minute concerto eschews sonata form for a kind of continuous transformation of thematic material, exploring melodic, rhythmic, harmonic and contrapuntal ideas in an almost improvisatory manner; rhapsodic, lyrical, episodic - choose which adjective you like, it's colorful, richly orchestrated music in the late Romantic Germanic tradition. Qian Zhou (violin), Qin Li-Wei, Sebastian Comberti (cellos), Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Orchestra; Jason Lai.
